    Out of sync? like a rock in a stream with everything else just washing around you?

    are you experiencing any of these?

    # headaches and other body pains
    # distortion or loss of subjective time
    # amnesia
    # depression
    # sudden anger without a justified cause
    # lack of intimacy and personal connections

    You shouldn't feel like that. I mean, WHAT is that boyfriend of yours doing? Whenever you feel incomplete, that's where he should come in and attempt at fixing what needs fixing and make you feel whole again.

    Just confirms you need a new one, I could fill that void. think about it.

    I feel like that most of the time, but that is mostly because I am pretty much just sitting in the same spot. If you do the same thing, day in and day out, everything starts to lose meaning and feeling.

    Even after I get out and get some good times in for myself, I just feel even more stuck when I slide back into the routine.

    Less rock in a stream and more cut leaf of grass blowing wherever the wind may take it, without any anchor or comforting certainty.

    Hearts with one purpose alone
    Through summer and winter seem
    Enchanted to a stone
    To trouble the living stream.
    The horse that comes from the road.
    The rider, the birds that range
    From cloud to tumbling cloud,
    Minute by minute they change;
    A shadow of cloud on the stream
    Changes minute by minute;
    A horse-hoof slides on the brim,
    And a horse plashes within it;
    The long-legged moor-hens dive,
    And hens to moor-cocks call;
    Minute by minute they live:
    The stone's in the midst of all.

    Yeats, "Easter 1916"

    Some people are stones in the middle of life, fixed, unmoving. They "trouble the living stream." (But then, these people are revolutionaries and idealists, not just feeling isolated or apart--though they are isolated and apart, too.)

    there are times when i feel very centered and rooted, and can feel the harmonies in nature and humanity all around me. when i feel so full of love that i could burst like a nova and cry tears of compassion for everyone in existence. but those times are few and far between, and they never last very long.

    and then there are the dark times, when i feel completely detached from my humanity and remain baffled at the world around me. where i look at all of my progress over the years and think that my cumulative efforts in all areas have signified nothing. that my intellectual prowess was nothing more than a cheap construct to mentally masturbate with and distract myself from the world around me. these are the times when i feel like an anomaly within an impossibility. fortunately, these times don't last very long either. unfortunately, i remember them much more lucidly.

    then there are times when i see myself playing the game, and i know it's a game, but i'm conscious of choosing to play it. that's an interesting place to be.

    but overall, i can honestly say that my basal level of happiness is gradually rising. dedicated self-effort and perseverance with my meditation practice and certain technological aids have brought this about. this is a far cry from the hyperneurotic, suicidal-self i was a mere 5 years ago. depression and i have danced together for a very, very long time; but not so much anymore.

    i don't know if this will make sense to anyone, but in the past the dark times felt 'sharper' and lasted much longer. now when they do happen, they feel 'blunter' and don't last nearly as long ( a few days as opposed to several months).

    was this the type of answer you were looking for, timberoo, or did i just spin it in an entirely different direction?

    I've been feeling that for the past two weeks, but its only because of the crappy weather. I just need to get my mojo back and my enthusiasm for everything will be back. But HOW to get my mojo back is the question. Where is Austin Powers when I need him.

    Seasonal Affective Disorder? I think a lot of people feel out of it at Christmas.
